I received the following in an e-mail:
"What the American people have seen is this incredible disparity in which those people who had cars and money got out and those people who were impoverished died." -- Ted Kennedy on Hurricane Katrina
"Ditto" -- Mary Jo Kopechne.
It seemed particularly appropriate in light of that worthy Senator's continuing chutzpah in continuing to show his face in public instead of hiding in shame.
As to the issue of cars. I don't mean to make light of anything, but I heard a talk show host rhetorically ask, if none of the people who were left in New Orleans could get out because they couldn't afford cars, whose cars were left stranded in the muck all over New Orleans after the hurricane was over?
